The Blues returned to Champions League action this evening with a 3,662-mile round trip to southern Russia.
Frank Lampard's side began their Group E campaign with a goalless home draw against Sevilla last week, but put four on the board against Krasnodar.
Chelsea led at half-time thanks to Callum Hudson-Odoi's goal despite an earlier Jorginho penalty miss, while Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all struck late on to seal a 4-0 victory.
